To have a generous heart and learn the ability to understand and share the feelings of another is a noble character quality to possess. Champ (the bully), who happens to like potato chips immensely, embarks on a journey of self discovery and personal growth when he meets Walter Norbert Whipplemoore, whom he immediately dislikes, rags on and definitely competes with him at baseball. Only thing is that all the other kids are friends with Walter and love his caring ways. Soon the coach announces the doings of a school fundraiser with the winner receiving a truckload of potato chips for the reward. Through an unfortunate accident Champ learns who the real champ is in the warm conclusion of the story, and embracing a fun, new friendship. The story moves at a quick pace with great, engaging illustrations and a fantastic lesson for young people to understand and emulate. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984855815, Paperback)

Champ and Walter Norbert Whipplemoore are about as different as two kids can be, well, except for their love of baseball and potato chips. Champ had everything, but always wanted more. Walter had very little, but was never seen without a smile on his face. In the end, it is Walter and some crunchy potato chips that teach Champ a lesson about character that can't be taught in school.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:38 -0400)

Champ and Walter, two boys from very different worlds, have a seemingly insignificant thing in common--their love for potato chips--but when Champ's world starts to crumble, Walter's kindness helps him feel better.
